5 Friday Fauquier factoids: Churches in Old Town
Warrenton Presbyterian and six other churches stand in downtown Warrenton.
Churches stand in Old Town Warrenton — roughly defined as the area within a couple blocks of Main Street:
• Christ Anglican
• First Baptist
• St. James’ Episcopal
• Warrenton Baptist
• Warrenton Bible Fellowship
• Warrenton Presbyterian
That doesn’t include nearby churches, such as Christian Science, Cornerstone, St. John the Evangelist Catholic and Warrenton United Methodist.
The approximate revenue generated by the 25th annual Delaplane Strawberry Festival last Saturday and Sunday at Sky Meadows State Park.
The total includes entrance fees ($25 per vehicle) and the sale of
4,860 pints of strawberries, sundaes and other items.
The proceeds will help fund Emmanuel Episcopal Church’s outreach programs, such as mission trips and local school supply drives. The church spent about $40,000 to stage the event.
It donated 120 pints of leftover strawberries to the Fauquier Community Food Bank.
People visited the Larry Weeks Community Pool at Vint Hill during Memorial Day weekend — Saturday through Monday, May 26-28.
During that three-day period, they generated $1,204 in admission fees and $301 in concession stand sales.
For the same period last year, the public pool had 183 visitors, who paid $932 to get in and $390 for concession stand items.
Reports the Fauquier County Social Services Department received during fiscal 2017 related to adult abuse, neglect and exploitation.
Of that total, 229 Fauquier adults (81 percent) needed assistance.
Total scholarships — from colleges and local organizations — awarded to 2018 graduates of Fauquier County’s three public high schools. That total includes:
• $1.9 million at Fauquier High School.
• $2.6 million at Kettle Run High School.
• $1 million at Liberty High School.
